# Building Tutorial for the graphical user interface File -> New -> Tutorial -> Tutorial 10. Building (see also Import Tutorial)

In this tutorial, SFEM analysis of a building structure will be presented.

## Description of the deterministic FE model

Consider the following six-story building to be analysed using SFEM toolbox:

A static loading with a magnitude of 100 kN has been applied to the  floors in +x direction. Linear static analysis has been performed, where the second order statistics of the x displacement of the node 1016 is selected as the response.

The various components of the structure are described below:

## Definition of the probabilistic model

The probabilistic model used in this tutorial is summmarized in the following table:

 Summary of the Probabilistic Model Structural Property Distribution Mean Value CoV Value Young's Modulus - Floors Normal (truncated) 70 GPa 0.10 Young's Modulus - Stairs Normal (truncated) 70 GPa 0.10 Young's Modulus - Columns Normal (truncated) 70 GPa 0.10 Young's Modulus - Soil Normal (truncated) 70 GPa 0.10 Total no of random parameters 4

The corresponding identifiers of the above probabilistic model appears as follows in the NASTRAN input file:

```\$ Material Record : soil
MAT1  ,   1  ,  <cossan name="RV1" format="%10.4e" original="1" /> ,   ,  .2 , 2500.
\$ Material Record : stairs
MAT1  ,   2  ,  <cossan name="RV2" format="%10.4e" original="1" />   ,   ,  .25 , 2500.
\$ Material Record : columns
MAT1  ,   3  ,  <cossan name="RV3" format="%10.4e" original="1" />   ,   ,  .25 , 2500.
\$ Material Record : floors
